I thought it would be straightforward editing of the map encounters thing, but there's no option... seemed to have been an MV plugin once, but no longer, and with this being MZ...

(Edited title to specify)

That's for all battles or one battle, right? I would more like to change it for just one map...

then you would need to place the command to change it in an erasing autorun on that map so that it is changed to that music on entering the map, and edit all transfer events out of the map to change it back when leaving the map.

Create an event with no graphic & put it in a convenient place. Many people put it top left corner out of the way.

Andar mistyped the setting for the event. It is not autorun, but parallel process. Parallel processes run the moment the map starts to load so there is no delay, and do not interfere with player movement etc.

Event Command menu tab 3
Select Change Battle BGM and select the track you want.
Event Command menu tab 2
Select Erase event. What this does is run the event once when you enter the map and never again unless you re-enter the map.

That's it.

Instead of erasing event I would simply turn it off with self switch.

completely wrong
if it is erase the event will run again if the map is reloaded (re-entered)
if you switch it off, it will never run again - only the first time the player enters the map

This seems to interfere even with other maps that don't have this music, why is that?

Or... not, it seems to be the default music, now I wonder how I'll stop it from interfering...

You need to change it back when you leave the map or it will play for all maps.

My Overworld might be a mix of inspiration from 2D Final Fantasy games, Breath of Fire, Battlechasers: Nightwar, Super Mario World, and Pillars of Eternity. If I can make it more in-depth than just walking from point A to point B, that might do a lot for the gameplay experience. Hmm...
